We suggested a list of dates that you may not wish to hold your wedding on for religious or superstitious reasons in our Wedding Dates to Avoid in 2012 published earlier this month. Speaking to a group of grooms-to-be recently they pointed out that the European football cup, Euro2012, which will be held this year in Poland and Ukraine, is a major wedding distraction among the increasing number of football fans.
Euro2012 kicks off on Friday, 8 June with a game between Poland and Greece in Warsaw. The final game is scheduled on Sunday, 1 July at 20:45 Central European Time (CET is GMT+1) in Kiev.
If you, or your wedding guests, will be glued to your TV sets during that period, take note of these dates:
First Game 8 June
Rest days 20, 25, 26, 29 and 30 June
Quarter Finals 21 June – 24 June
Semi Finals 27 June – 28 June
Finals 1 July
Plan carefully. Enjoy the games!
